An access log is a text file that contains a thorough list of all of the files accessed by your Internet site visitors. All the files which were requested in one way or another will be included, so when you have a PHP script application and a website visitor opens just the home page, for example, you might find numerous files inside the log. The reason is that there are elements on the home page which are embedded - parts of other Internet pages, pictures, etc. These files shall be listed in the access log, so you can get a full picture of the way your website works. The data is in plain text format, so the logs are often called "raw data" too. An access log provides the name of each requested file, the path to it, the date it was accessed, as well as the user’s IP address, browser and Operating System. More information, such as the referrer website, is typically included too. A log file may be processed by various desktop applications for statistical purposes as an addition to the web stats provided by your website hosting server.

Access Log Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

If you pick one of our cloud website hosting plans, you will get in-depth access logs for your Internet sites. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you can check out the Access/Error Logs section in which you will see a full list of the domain names and subdomains you have added or created within the web hosting account. You will only have to click on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side of each hostname and our cloud platform will start generating logs right away. To stop this feature, you will need to follow the very same steps and click on the Off button. The domains and subdomains can be managed individually and whenever you want. You'll find a download link within the Logs section of the Control Panel for every log created by our system, so that you can save the file to your PC and view it or use it through some log processing software.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced website hosting platform shall generate access logs for every single Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is enabled. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed within the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which we offer with all of the accounts, so if you need our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should simply click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and change the default Off option to On. You'll be able to disable this function at any time by following the very same steps. You'll find a Download link for each and every log in the same section of the CP, so you will be able to save the content generated by our system in .txt format with simply a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the function has been disabled, so you will still be able to view the data that's already been generated.
